Kindergarten and 1st Grade Mud Cloth Paintings

The Kindergarten and 1st grade students learned about mud cloth from Mali. They learned about  the variety of patterns that decorate the cloth and how those patterns are created with natural pigments and dyes. The students then painted a sheet of white paper with coffee to give the paper a more natural look. The following class, they used brown, black and white paints to create beautiful paintings with mud cloth inspired patterns. The paintings are absolutely gorgeous!
